Nik Greeley and The Operators + West End Blend in Charleston, SC
November 14 @ 8:00 pm - November 15 @ 1:30 am
Nik Greeley & The Operators
“The band’s energetic live performances include a diverse spectrum of rhythm, blues, jazz, and extreme levels of funk, and is one of the most infectious live music experiences you’ll have. Greeley’s voice can be felt from around the block, and his full brass section will fill any room with contagiously electrifying vibes.”
-Kendall Deflin, Live For Live Music
“Without hesitation, I will declare Nik Greeley as the best frontman in Philadelphia. Greeley is a smooth criminal, a funk soul brother, and yet 100% punk rock. He’s simultaneously foxy and frightening.”
Wendy McCardle, The Swollen Fox
“Greeley – the ultimate showman – growls, pumps his fist and slides to his knees, where he arches his back and pleadingly wails before the girls sitting on the tapestry table. He frantically emotes for one more song, seemingly burning through all of his energy and passion, and then retreats to the back of the courtyard and his beer.”
George Miller, Jump Magazine
West End Blend
Since their conception, Funk/Soul band West End Blend has been playing their version of Funk and Soul in venues all over the Northeast. Fronted by vocalist Erica Bryan, the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while adding their own distinct vibe and flair. Behind her, the Blend packs a four-piece horn section, two guitars, bass, keyboards and drums onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic sweaty funky basement dance party, the Blend’s goal has always been to bring that same atmosphere to every show ever since.
The Blend released their debut full length record, “Rewind”, in the Fall of 2015. The album was recorded at Telefunken Studios with Grammy Award winning engineer, Brendan Morawski. Alongside their album release, West End Blend shared the stage with Turkuaz, Break Science, Kung Fu, Twiddle, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, The Nth Power, The Motet and countless others Jam/Funk staples throughout 2015-2016. On September 28th, 2016 the Blend released their latest EP “Say Hey!” as they embarked on their Fall Tour across the Northeast. Throughout their Fall tour they shared the stage with Dopapod, The Nth Power, Turkuaz, Hayley Jane & The Primates, Deep Banana Blackout and more.
